When Dolly signed with Columbia, she agreed to record some country albums and some pop albums. No doubt both parties expected Dolly's pop albums to be the big sellers but it didn't work out that way and this ended up being the only pop album that Dolly recorded for the label. White Limozeen and Eagle when she flies, both country albums, were much more successful. Nevertheless, this album has much to like about it and deserved to do better than it did. With one exception, all the songs are originals.
There is a hint of Motown as Dolly covers a Mary Wells song (Two lovers) and records a duet with Smokey Robinson (I know you by heart). Of the other songs here, I particularly like The river unbroken (about waiting for a train and dreaming of the destination), Everyday hero (about a happy couple), Could I have your autograph (about a potential romance) and More than I can say (a Dolly original, not a cover of Bobby Vee's sixties hit that later became a UK hit for Leo Sayer).
This album will never be regarded as on one of Dolly's classic albums but it should appeal to those who enjoy Dolly's pop-sounding albums.
